VIRTUAL – Virtual Cultural Program – Special Holocaust Series

View Calendar

Join us via Zoom to meet Holocaust survivors who were saved because Italians risked their lives to help them. They hid them, provided fake documents and gave them food and shelter.

Hear words of gratitude from those who lived through one of the worst times in history and see living examples of the famous quote in the Talmud, "When you save one life, it is as if you saved the entire world."

Help shine a light on this important part of history, how approximately 80% of the Jews in Italy survived the Holocaust, because individuals chose to take action and see them as "cristiani come noi" - people just like us.

If you missed Parts 1 and 2 of the “If you are not indifferent, things can be different”  series, watch it on demand via Casa Belvedere’s website:
